To make this cheesecake, I started with my great-grandfather’s recipe. We knew him as Grandpa Chuck, but when he was cooking, he preferred Chowhound Charlie, making the official title of this recipe “Chowhound Charlie’s New York Cheesecake.”
Today is National Cheesecake Day! Woot! Woot! Let’s hear it for cheesecake!
Dipping things in chocolate is all the rage. It’s like the trend that never goes out of style, because it’s always awesome.
Today the sun came out, I woke up in a good mood, and it was time to bake something fun… just for fun. I found some cream cheese in the fridge just begging to be baked with, and I figured my chocolate cake would taste amazing with a little cheesecake on top.
I told my kids they have no imagination when it comes to cold cereal. All they do, day in and day out, is pour it in a bowl and cover it with milk. To prove my point, I turned my box of Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds into a crust for these cheesecake bars.
I love a good pumpkin roll. This year, I’m making my pumpkin roll into bars. This way, I can still get all the pumpkin-and-cream-cheese goodness without the rolling.
It seems like cheesecake bars are like the cool kid on the block these days. Everyone is making them. You name it, you can make it into a cheesecake bar.
I learned a lesson from this cheesecake. If I keep a few items on hand, I can always have a quick and easy dessert, no matter how unprepared I feel. Having just a little foresight can save you a ton of worry and stress.
I personally prefer a little Shasta Black Cherry in my eggnog. Nothing transports me to the Christmas Eve’s of my childhood faster.
To help my quest to feel young again, I made a dessert that is easy and chocolatey and kid-sized. It feels like a brilliant idea that you and your best friend had one late night when bored.
